As most VentureBeat readers know, we’re partnering with DEMO, the leading conference for tech companies launching products. My boss Matt Marshall will be replacing Chris Shipley as the event’s executive producer, and for the upcoming DEMO (from March 1 to 3), we’ve put together a series of panels called DEMObeat, which will focus on three important tech trends — social data sharing, energy efficiency, and new tools to increase productivity.

Of course, excited as we are about DEMObeat, the conference’s big event will be the launching of innovative new companies and products. It looks like a list of the presenting companies has already leaked out, and you can see it below. It’s just a list, though; you won’t be getting more details until our coverage (and that of other publications) next week.

Just to reiterate, VentureBeat isn’t getting any special treatment in how we cover the event. Hence the fact that someone published the list before we’d intended it to be. (Update: The initial list I published was incomplete, but it should be complete now. My apologies to companies that were left off.) Anyway, here it is:
